I doubt if it's an anti-theft/key issue. It's hard to guess at what is wrong without being able to do some basic tests to see if you have lost spark, fuel or if the engine has something mechanically wrong. If the engine has higher mileage have you had the timing belt replaced? I would check for the presence of spark and fuel first.
